1 "Smartphones are just slabs of black glass. "
The design is garish, but it's a nice change from a boring slab of black glass.  Whenever I can order a phone that's a different color, I do.

2 I really like the Mi Mix Alpha.  With its wrap-around OLED screen you can make it look like what ever you want.  On the other hand, $2800...

3 Hey, double it and go up a time unit is my estimate technique too.

4 "No PCIe 4.0 at all, not even for the uplink."
That appears to be the price for no active cooling?
At some point I'll unplug all the case fans on my x570 board so I can see if the chipset fan actually makes any noise.  A 360mm radiator will keep the CPU cool long enough to tell.

5 Re: CPU cooling, when I was a penniless high school student, I had a passively-cooled desktop, but only because the heat sink fan died and I didn't have $15 to buy a replacement. It was an Athlon 64X2, and happily peaked at 240-250F for several years, until I got a job and was able to replace the whole thing.

6 I've seen worse phones, but I also own a Moto e4 plus, which is heavy enough to bend time and space in its vicinity, so my opinion may not count for much.

7 The e4 is a perfectly cromulent phone.  I used to use a g5s plus, which is basically the same phone with a slightly higher-end CPU.  The nice thing about the size was the big battery and the fact that it was more sturdy than glass-wrapped phones.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
